The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.
I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met. As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors and animatedly describing what each one tastes like.
I'd have to say that the two Von doughnuts I've tried are among the best I've ever tried. The Caramel Salt N' Pepa was just the right mix of salty-sweet with a bit of spicy kick and the doughnut itself was soft and delicious. I have to give them nuff respect on their doughnut holes too. Simple but very yummy with a nice cup of hot coffee or tea.
I have been thinking about Von since the day I found it and I can't wait to get back there. The next two (yes, I said 2) I plan to try are the Crème Brûlée that supposed to taste like it's name and the Pucker Up Sucker that supposed to taste like lemon meringue pie. Damn, I may just have to drop by today.
Until next time. Hugs to all.
